  • Marc Quinn: At the Far Edges of the Universe

    Inspired by the blooms found at the Covent Garden Flower Market, a stone’s throw from our London gallery, are these beautiful and vivid new editions recently acquired from famed yBa artist Marc Quinn. Marc Quinn is perhaps most famous for a series of figurative sculptural works produced over the last 2 decades. Most noticeably ‘Blood Head’, a sculpture of his own head cast in 8 pints of his own frozen blood; ‘Sphinx’, a sculpture of Kate Moss depicted in a yoga position with her legs twisted around the back of her head and ‘Alison Lapper Pregnant’, a 3.6-metre sculpture of the disabled British artist which was put on Trafalgar Square's Fourth Plinth. Quinn’s sculpture, paintings and drawings often deal with the distanced relationship we have with our bodies, highlighting how the conflict between the ‘natural’ and ‘cultural’ has a grip on the contemporary psyche. This recent study of flowers is a progression of a subject he began in 2000 when Quinn created ‘Garden’, a walk-through installation of impossibly beautiful flowers that will never decay. He followed with the ‘Eternal Spring’ sculptures - flowers preserved in perfect bloom by being plunged into sub-zero silicone. ‘At the Far Edges of the Universe’ and the two other new editions from Quinn: ‘Lavinia Plantia’ and ‘Sea of Tranquillity’ were images originally produced for his White Cube exhibition in 2010 and initially based on blooms such as orchids and tulips bought at Covent Garden Flower Market. The editions, available individually or a set, are composed of 10 prints. Each one printed with pigmented inks on 308 gsm Hahnemühle Photo Rag cotton white paper and hand-varnished. Each individual print is signed by the artist and numbered on the reverse from an edition of 59. Quinn’s flower paintings hit the headlines earlier this year when fashion label Wunderkind was accused of reproducing his striking floral pictures after dresses apparently bearing the prints appeared on the Paris catwalk.Quinn has since demanded they stop using the designs in their collections and stated: "To take someone's copyrighted material and turn it into a commercial product without permission is unacceptable."  ‘At the Far Edges of the Universe’, ‘Lavinia Plantia’ and ‘Sea of Tranquillity’ are now currently available.

    British fine artist Dan Baldwin has just released three new works all expertly produced entirely in the medium of silkscreen for the first time ever. We saw them for real on the day of their release and they are something special… The three new prints: 'Death At The Parade', 'Hope' and 'Cyclone', officially released last week at the prestigious Royal Academy print fair, London, are the first fruit born from Baldwin’s new working relationship with iconic printers Coriander, whose artist roster reads like a who’s-who of the contemporary art world. The results are sensational with these prints, for the first time ever in Dan Baldwin’s career, produced solely as silkscreen prints rather than the usual combination of giclee and silkscreen. The prints are yet to arrive into the gallery, as the finishing touches are still being made, but were are expecting quality with promises of gold leaf, spot glazing and embossed areas providing the illusion of 3D. Dan Baldwin’s work bridges the gap between abstract and figurative painting. His style has a unique aesthetic which is difficult to categorise. Working by instinct, it can change dramatically depending on the subject matter he is exploring and the emotions he is channelling. His integration of mixed media found objects (knives, crucifixes, bullets, bank notes and razor blades) over screen prints, acrylic and spray paint adds depth, clarity and balance. A great example of this is in the controversial canvas ‘Death, Fuck, Power, Lust’. Amidst the edgy brushstrokes and sinister themes, symbolism proliferates in Baldwin’s work. From children’s storybook illustrations and images of war to skate graphics and Vanitas, each viewer develops a highly personal response to what they see. Baldwin’s superlative technique and conceptual brilliance position him at the forefront of the new Young British Artist movement. His work is internationally celebrated, championed and collected by an exclusive clientele. Baldwin has exhibited his paintings, prints and ceramics around the world. He has enjoyed a stream of critically lauded sell-out solo shows and has become a solid fixture at auction houses in recent years.

  • Peter Blake's new Homage to Damien Hirst series of prints

    British pop artist Sir Peter Blake’s Homage to Damien Hirst is a series of silkscreen prints which are a continuation of Blake’s Butterfly Man motif: a character who recurs in several of his collage series (Venice Suite, World Tour, Paris Quartet) as well as a tribute to his friend and inspirat....
    British pop artist Sir Peter Blake’s Homage to Damien Hirst is a series of silkscreen prints which are a continuation of Blake’s Butterfly Man motif: a character who recurs in several of his collage series (Venice Suite, World Tour, Paris Quartet) as well as a tribute to his friend and inspiration Damien Hirst. ‘Damien Hirst has used butterflies a lot in his work, and it was pointed out that ‘the butterfly man’ owes more than a little to his work, so I was happy to dedicate him in homage to Damien. I am an enormous admirer of Damien’s work.’ In the series Blake once again makes use of retro postcard images as backdrops to his collage of the butterfly man, dozens of butterflies and an assortment of eclectic characters from the miscellaneous print paraphernalia that he has hoarded over the years.  Each print is a 24 colour silkscreen print with glazes in a signed limited edition of 100. The prints are The Butterfly Man Hollywoodland, The Butterfly Man Eastbourne, The Butterfly Man Tokyo, The Butterfly Man Tunis and The Butterfly Man Venice. The prints can also be purchased as a full set wiht matching edition numbers The Butterfly Man starts in Hollywood and this print captures the golden age of Hollywood glamour with its vista of the Hollywood hills and kitsch mini-mansions. Frolicking in the foreground along with the butterfly man are numerous Hollywood legends including Charlie Chaplin, James Dean, Laurel & Hardy, Errol Flynn, Elvis, Marilyn and Judy Garland. Blake then returns to home ground for the charming Butterfly Man, Eastbourne, revelling in the vintage glory of the British seaside holiday. No A-list celebs here, just a swarm of colourful butterflies being released onto the sea-front amongst an idealised group of Edwardian promenaders. The Butterfly Man then goes to Japan and orchestrates his pets in front of the statue of Saigo Takamori (famous samurai) in The Butterfly Man, Tokyo. Along with Japanese ladies in elegant kimonos, Blake includes some unexpected visitors in the form of African tribesmen and a European lady in formal costume. The butterfly man’s travels continue on the North Africa, where he releases his multitude of larger than life butterflies in the souk at Tunis. The final stop on the tour is Venice and the piazza San Marco (an old haunt for the Butterfly Man), where an appreciative crowd have gathered to welcome him back to La Serenissima.
